Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
I followed this recipe *almost* exactly - the only change I made was to remove the butter, both from inside the dish as well as on top. In my opinin, the butter was unnecessary because the eggs, milk and crackers gave this dish all the richness it needed. The end result was quite tasty (although my husband thought it was less so than I did). The only reason it didn't get 5 stars from me is that the crackers which I added to the squash turned out very mushy so the consistency was a little....off. If the texture of your food is an issue - you may want to avoid this, but the flavor was certainly good!

Lemon-Dijon Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
I made this for dinner last night - and it was pretty good - but nothing spectacular. It's relatively impressive for a beginner, I may try it again, but will add a bit more Dijon.

15-Minute Dinner Nachos Supreme

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
This was really good - and even better served with sour cream and nacho chips that I heated in the oven. I would have rated this 3.5 stars if I could have because hubs and I both felt that there was too much rice in this dish - so next time I will reduce the amount of rice and water by 1/2 cup each. After trying this again, I find that reducing the amount of rice and water makes this dish MUCH better - but you do need about 1 1/4 cups of water to the 1 cup of rice otherwise the mixture is a bit too tight.

Vegetable Chowder

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
I made this for dinner the other night and served it with some homemade crusty bread. The end result was good, satisfying soup - but it was very basic, so I probably won't make it again (there are other recipes out there that are better, and just as easy to make).

Tasty Meat Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
We made this the other night for dinner and followed the recipe exactly with exception the addition of garlic and we added a bottom crust as well. The end result was ok - surprisingly bland....this would be a good recipe for someone just learning how to cook.

Tilapia Soft Tacos with Chipotle Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
Did not enjoy this at all - hubs took two bites and would not eat the rest. This is not a winner for us.

Candy Red Apple Martini

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
Really good mart....a bit too much sour apple for me (ended up using half the amount called for). The end result was really good...headace material for sure.

Grilled Chicken Salad Cosmopolitan

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
This was pretty good. I followed the recipe exactly and in the end didn't find the chicken picked up much of the marinade flavour (although I marinated it for about 10 hours). The dressing was good, but if I were to make this again, I would add some toasted almonds for crunch

Cheesy Vegetable Soup I

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
We really enjoyed this soup and I would make it again for sure. I did reduce the amount of margarine to about 2 or 3 Tbsp and I also used chicken broth instead of water/bouillon. Lastly, I reduced the amount of cheese to about 1 cup, the end result was tasty and satisfying (not to mentino super quick to make). We will very likely make this again.

Buttery Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
I am rating these rolls 4 stars because that's what I would rate them if I changed two things next time I make them. 1. The milk should be more like 110F (70-80F is not warm enough, so my yeast didn't really bloom). 2. I would also bake these longer. I followed the instructions and while they looked don, they turned out very doughy, so I would bake them an extra 10 minutes or so. The alternative to baking longer would be to make these into individual rolls and bake that way. It's also worth mentioning that I used my KitchenAid mixer instead of a bread machine, and that worked out great!

Tanya's Louisiana Southern Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
This chicken was really good! We used only chicken breast halves, which I halved again. I would definitely make this again, but in my opinion, the flour really needs to be seasoned (which is why I only rated in 4 stars, instead of 5)!

Sweet and Tangy Glazed Salmon

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
The sauce was pretty good - and we really enjoyed that it was grilled. We'll make this again.

Corn and Avocado Salsa

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
This was ok. I only used 2 ears of corn because that's all I had - should have used 3. I used 1 avocado, because I thought that was more than enough....I also reduced the amount of cumin, cilantro, red pepper flakes, red pepper and onion. The end result tasted very much like red wine vinegar - I would certainly reduce the amount, maybe even omit it if I were to make this again.

Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Tortilla Chips

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
Wow - this was just fantastic! I also baked the tortilla chips (I used flax seed for added fibre) and the end result was outstanding! The only change I made was to use pear in place of the kiwi because it's what I had on hand.

Tzatziki Sauce I

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
I made this to along with some souvlaki we had and the end result was pretty good. I found it a bit tangier than the stuff I get at my local Greek restaurant, but I may have added a bit too much lemon juice (I just eye-balled it). I used Balkan style yogurt and it was the perfect thickness; I should also mention that I also added cucumber...it's just not tzatziki without cucumber!

Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
These are the most delicious rolls I have ever made. Super easy and ridiculously good - I used the dough for "Lunch Box Handwiches" on this site and it turned out really good.

Lunch-Box "Handwiches"

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
I made these for my husband's lunch using leftover Easter ham. The end result was pretty tasty, but a little on the bland side. I used ham and swiss and some with ham and cheddar...but they were missing something, I just don't know what. It's important to note that I also used the Honey Whole Wheat dinner rolls recipe off this site and it worked beautifully. Next time I makde these, I am going to put pizza filling inside - that would be delicious.

Crunchy Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
This was so delicous! I used some leftover turkey breast and followed the recipe *almost* exactly. I reduced the celery to 1 large stalk and reduced the apple to 1 large MacIntosh (peeled). I also omitted the sour cream because I didn't have any and just used Olive Oil Hellmans. The end result was absolutely delicous - to the point that my husband who proclaims to hate turkey salad rated it 5 stars. The next time I make this, I will toast the walnuts for added flavour and I might add some dried cranberries which would be delicious as well. EDIT: I made this again using chicken and it was just as good!

Easy Mini Quiches

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
These are not quiche, in my opinion. I found them dry and the only real flavour was of the bacon and onions. I used green onions because the flavour was milder and I made these primarily for my children to eat. A point worth noting is that I do make my own baking mix using: 1 cup of flour, 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt and 1 Tbsp of shortening. I use a fork (or pastry blender) to mix and these works out very nicely as a homemade baking mix. So all in all, we prefer a more 'eggy' quiche, so we probably won't be making these again.

Gulliver's Cream Corn

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
Meh...this was ok. I still prefer the canned stuff. The only change I made was to use 10% cream because that's what I had and I used my immersion blender to give it a buzz and break down some of the corn kernals. In the end, the corn was ok - but very sweet. I would suggest leaving out the sugar...or at least reducing it by half.
